Hello everyone! So today I wanted to share with everyone that I am going to start training to run a 5k! Correena run? What? lol...That's what I was saying to myself when the thought crossed my mind. I NEVER run, EVER. I do have torn tendons in my left ankle and have had 2 surgeries years ago. The surgeries worked but I kept spraining my ankle so now I think I am worse off than I was before. I decided to start training for a 5k for a few reasons. The first reason was that I wanted to do something different, something challenging. Since I haven't ran in god knows how long, I thought it would be a great idea to start now. My mind and my body has changed so much over the past 2 months. I believe that I can do anything I put my mind to. The second reason I decided to train for a 5k is the simple fact that I haven't ran. I want to train my body to be able to run for long periods of time and distance. I want to be able to wake up on a spring or summer morning and go for a jog in my wonderful, peaceful neighborhood. The whole point of my journey is to push myself harder and overcome any fears or doubts that I have ever had about myself.
I found a website that gives your a schedule to follow for a 5k. I heard there is an app, but I haven't looked into it yet. The website gives a 8 weeks schedule to follow. The site is http://running.about.com/od/racetraining/a/first5K.htm. I am starting my journey Monday Feb. 18, along with my Shakeology and 2nd month of TurboJam! I will keep everyone updated. If I can do it, anyone can do it. Push hard, and feel great!
